Webinar BIR Paper Division: "The recycling industry and the post-COVID perspective on freight​"

  • 10 November 2021

Paper Webinar

The recovered paper market has maintained its positive momentum throughout most of the year, with healthy order books for our customers and therefore good demand for most of our sector’s grades. But as Longfellow wrote: “Into each life some rain must fall.” The European Commission’s proposed restriction on exports of the continent’s recovered fibre surplus would have untold negative consequences for a well-functioning recycling market -consequences that would be nothing but damaging to the environment. And at the day-to-day business level, shipping space is proving both difficult to find and prohibitively expensive. Join our experts on November 10 for a BIR Paper Division webinar that will shine a light on all the latest developments impacting paper recycling businesses and on what the future might hold for them.
